Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-2995) Making Storage Engine Pluggable
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2011 12:05:27 GMT
Making Storage Engine Pluggable

                 Key: CASSANDRA-2995
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 0.8.2
            Reporter: Muga Nishizawa
             Fix For: 1.0

Will you design and implement Cassandra's storage engine API like MyCassandra?

MyCassandra provides extensible architecture for pluging other storage engines to Cassandra
like MySQL.
It could be advantageous for Cassandra to make the storage engine pluggable.  This could allow
Cassandra to 
- deal with potential use cases where maybe the current sstables are not the best fit
- allow several types of internal storage formats (at the same time) optimized for different
data types
- allow easier experiments and research on new storage formats (encourage research institutions
to do strange things with Cassandra)
- there could also be potential advantages from better isolation of the data engine in terms
of less risk for data corruptions if other parts of Cassandra change
